“Lover’s Eyes”

But do not ask the price I pay
I must live with my quiet rage
Tame the ghosts in my head
That run wild and wish me dead
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord, forget all of my sins
Oh, let me die where I lie
‘Neath the curse of my lover’s eyes

“Roll Away Your Stone”

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think
And yet it dominates the things I see

“Broadshouldered Beast”

When you feel the world
Wrapping around your neck
Feel my hand wrapped in yours
And when you feel the world
Wrapping around your neck
Don’t succumb

“The Cave”

‘Cause I have other things to fill my time
You take what is yours and I’ll take mine
Now let me at the truth
Which will refresh my broken mind

“Hold on To What you Believe”

But hold on to what you believed in the light
When the darkness has robbed you of all your sight
And oh, hold on to what you believed in the light
When the darkness has robbed you of all your sight

“ST. Anthony Finds Micah/Below My Feet”

A friend passed away and was said to be close to St. Anthony, patron saint of finding things.

And now I sleep
Sleep the hours and that I can’t weep
When all I knew was steeped in blackened holes
I was lost
Keep the Earth below my feet
For all my sweat, my blood runs weak
Let me learn from where I have been
Keep my eyes to serve and my hands to learn
Keep my eyes to serve and my hands to learn

“Wilder Mind”

But hold her now
I find myself awake
Waiting on the edge again

With a silver crystal lung
How will you use to know how to shine?
In a place that’s safe from heart
But I had been blessed with a wilder mind

“White Blank Page”

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, to the brink
You desired my attention
But denied my affections, my affections


So tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart?
Oh, tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with my whole heart?
